A place to talk about anything well just about anything (this is a family show remember).

"yeah Lin, they will be itchy for a week or so after,"

I pulled one out with my fingers without knowing it was a tick once and had to get anti-histamines a week later because of the itch. Up to a year later I could still feel where it had been and it would still itch occasionally!

Because we had so many between us, I had a good look at them though and can now tell the difference between a brown tick and a paralysis tick. Not that it makes much difference. Once you've got them, it's kind of too late.

We were all alright despite a few paralysis ticks. So was my dog. But friends' Jack Russel cross had to be rushed to the emergency vet after they came home and they paid close to $1000 to save him!

Puppies (as in all dogs) are always a worry.... they can't tell you.

My dog's had them before and it doesn't seem to affect her much fortunately. The advantage of having a largeish bitser.
